there is no best ds ever and they r all so special

its the matter of momentary preference

i love veneta ds, but id rather listen to http://www.archive.org/details/gd72-03-23.sbd.goodbear.137.sbefail.shnf or http://www.archive.org/details/gd72-04-08.sbd.giles-jeffm.2534.sbeok.shnf or http://www.archive.org/details/gd72-04-29.aud.vernon.5250.sbeok.shnf. spring 72 dstars r much harder, sharper and more explosive than those mellow & lazy summer 72 dstars

I still can't get enough of the last 15 minutes of the 11-11-1973 Dark Star. I love how Jerry makes those airplane noises with his guitar as they move into MLB Jam. It's fucking brilliant. I also love 5/11/72 but I can't listen to that anymore because it gives me bittersweet (and bad) memories of an awful event that happened to me a few months back.
